We stayed at Skjaldarvik Guest House for 2 nights and it was wonderful. The receptionist gave us a tour as we checked in and made us feel at home right from the start. The rooms were great with very comfortable beds, clean facilities, and a...More
It was definitely adorable. Homemade local craft goods to buy lined the halls, the decor was a shabby chic type look that was clean and cute. Nice lounge area with different conversation seating areas. When we tried to sleep, though....oh my. We could hear conversations...More
Our family really enjoyed our stay at this guest house. Our room was a little small, but airy and bright with a great view of the fjord. Our children (ages 5 and 7) did the 'Horse Lesson' one morning, which was a perfect introduction to...More
The moment you enter the guesthouse, it feels warm, friendly and welcoming. From the bathrobes in your room to the fully equipped bathrooms to the breakfast and the take yourself bar in the living room.

Although it is not near city centre, we enjoy very much our two night stays at this place. The room is clean with decent space. Share bathrooms are not a problem since there are plenty of them. Check in was smooth and informative. Breakfast has...More

My daughter and I have reservations with you for Thursday, August 20th and Friday, August 21st. We are arriving by Icelandia on Thur August 20th @9:15 AM and getting a 4x4 vehicle. We plan on going to Lake Myvatn and Dettisfoss Waterfalls on Thursday. Is it faster to go straight to the Lake or come by you to drop off our luggage? What time is dinner served on Thursday. Also we would love to do a horse ride on Firday towards the late afternoon or evening. Our flight back is at 21:10. Please let us now what is possible in terms of these requests. We are very excited about staying with you.

Thanks for asking, but I am not the innkeeper. My wife and I were simply guests at Skjaldarvik. We are familiar enough with Akureyri to say that if you are coming from Reykjavik, you will pass by Skjaldarvik before you reach Myvatn and Dettifoss. If you are arriving at the airport in Akureyri, it would be a little bit easier to go to Myvatn and Dettifoss first.
You are going to love it!
